Borderline Tattoos


Borderline Tattoos was originally owned and operated by one of Australia's most respected artists, Paul Braniff.

Borderline was the first ever tattoo studio to be established on the Gold Coast and was originally located on the QLD/NSW border (hence the name). Borderline is now owned by Tim Ebbels, who worked for Paul for a number of years before buying the studio from him over 16 years ago. The studio is now based in the heart of beautiful Burleigh Heads.

Borderline is a well respected, high class tattoo studio and home to some of Australia's most gifted artists. We have great respect for our customers; it's because of you that we get to do what we love! You will always get a warm welcome when you walk through our doors. Our studio is more of an art gallery than a run of the mill tattoo shop. Drop by and be inspired by the vast collection of art that we have showcased on the walls (an eclectic collection that Tim has acquired over 20 years).

After a particular style of tattoo? We have a specialty artist for every tattoo genre.
